“My thanks to all of the artists who submitted their work to the Hoyt Regional, I am grateful for the opportunity to review their work for the Hoyt Regional. Of course, the criteria for judgment for projects this can be difficult to pin down, especially when such different media and types of practice are represented. I hope to have selected an array that not only speaks to the range of the submitted work, but that includes works that stand out for their creative use of form and materials, as well as ideas and emotions. Artists help guide us as we think about the world we live in, the legacies we’ve received from the past, and the directions the future might take. Sometimes what we need is a simple moment of beauty or wonder; sometimes we need to be challenged to see things in a different way. The selections made here, from the over 500 submissions, are guided by thoughts like those.” – Tyler Cann
